Re: Tracking programming - File Management

I have no problems with all the interrupts being shut down, if you are only wanting that programme running.

How do I load programmes from a networked QL with the QL NET connection?

Re: ULA1 nextgen idea...

Hi, A nice specification, which I agree with most of the points, except, the QL Network, I know many people who connect QL-QL-Q68-QXL-QPC2 with this networking system. What about future expansion? The specification while good and nearly concise, is missing a few points that define a QL. Personally, ...

Re: The QL UDG Playground

Hi,

QPC2 or any other system running SMSQ/E to use 8 colour mode, use the command:

COLOUR_QL
DISP_SIZE 256,256

Would give a MODE 8 display.

Q68 has DISP_MODE 0 to give a Mode 8 screen size.

Re: The QL UDG Playground

...oh my lots of colourful text in upper case...

Ithink I will not persue the Spectrum conversion of games and applications, as Spectrum were rubbish, and woukd wosrt on the QL.

Maybe better to direct my attensions back to assembley programming, where it does not matter about extensions.

Re: ULA1 nextgen idea...

This all sounds what I meant... But you said it is not a QL anymore... I have PCs, Amigas, Atari STs, Spectrums, ZX81s and many more... The QL is the operating system, not the hardware it runs on. If you impose the limitations of a the sole of the QL is a 128K with expansion to 640K, twin 100K MIcro...

Re: The QL UDG Playground

Hi, I have been trying to port over ZX Spectrum games, but the main problems other than the different Basic syntax, was the Spectrum User Defined Graphics. A while back, I thought of using a custom Font that could have characters 128-143 defined as Spectrum Block Graphics, Spectrum UDG A-U, Characte...

Re: ULA1 nextgen idea...

Hi

Thank uou for the clarification.

I always wondered if ULA1 could be replaced with a new ULA with faster ram, this would only be used for Video Ram.

The idea was to eliminate the ram contension on the QL Board.
